Shiv Elite

Shiv Elite


Pro Tip: Use our Shiv Finder to determine the proper Shiv size for you.

The Shiv was designed with one goal in mind—making you faster over the bike leg of your race. Of course, we wanted to do this without setting you back six months' rent. So, whether you're looking to go after your first triathlon or set a fresh PR, you can ride with the confidence that your Shiv is up to the task.

This Shiv Elite places an emphasis on delivering speed and performance at a palatable value. That said, it's spec'd with a mix of Shimano 105 and Praxis components, our legendary Sitero Comp saddle, and smooth, durable, and fast DT R460 wheels.

  • A bike can only be as fast as its rider, which is why we developed the Control Tower fit system that let's you optimize your stack and reach numbers in order to find your most comfortable and powerful position for your desired length.
  • A full FACT 10r carbon fiber frame was developed in our very own Win Tunnel, and it's not only been aerodynamically optimized for straight-line speed, but it also features airfoils that have been optimized to limit side force in crosswinds.
  • The Fuselage Hydration System houses a water bladder inside of the frame, making it virtually invisible to the wind. And to go along with your water, the optional add-on Fuelcell fits plenty of food and even has room for a flat kit. The best part of the Fuselage and Fuelcell combination is that, when packed correctly, it cleans up the frame and saves up to 75 seconds when compared to a taped-up system.
